A college degree can be your pathway to more opportunity and a better life.

The FOP Free College Benefit covers the cost of tuition, fees, and books for participating degree programs at EGCC. This is possible through a combination of grants, employer reimbursements and scholarships. And don’t worry - even if it’s determined that you are not eligible for any outside financial aid, the FOP Free College Benefit has you covered. A "last dollar" scholarship will be applied to your outstanding balance for tuition, fees, and books, even if it's determined the student is not eligible for Federal, State, or employer financial aid..

Eastern Gateway Community College is a public college, regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, and governed by the Ohio Department of Higher Education as part of the University System of Ohio. Credits earned at EGCC are transferable to most other colleges and universities.
